      No work shall commence prior to Offeror receiving an Asbestos Survey Results and Work Authorization with
      appropriate University signatures.

24.   Package Goods. Offeror shall package goods in accordance with good commercial practice. Each shipping
      container shall be clearly and permanently marked as follows: (a) Offeror's name and address; (b) University’s
      name, address and purchase order number; (c) Container number and total number of containers, e.g., box 1
      of 4 boxes; and (d) The number of the container bearing the packing slip. Offeror shall bear cost of packaging
      unless otherwise provided.

25.   Shipment Under Reservation Prohibited. Offeror shall not be authorized to ship the goods under
      reservation and no tender of a bill of lading shall operate as a tender of the goods.

26.   Liens. All goods delivered and labor performed under this Contract shall be free of all liens and, if the
      University requests, a formal release of all liens shall be delivered to the University.

27.   No Replacement of Defective Tender. Every tender of goods shall fully comply with all provisions of this
      Contract as to time of delivery, quantity, quality, and the like. If a tender is made which does not fully conform,
      this shall constitute a breach and Offeror shall not have the right to substitute a conforming tender.

28.   Title And Risk Of Loss. The title and risk of loss of the goods shall not pass to the University until the University
      actually receives the goods at the point(s) of delivery. Prices shall be F.O.B. Destination. Offeror shall retain title
      and control of all goods until they are delivered, received, and the Contract of coverage has been completed. All
      risk of transportation and all related charges shall be the responsibility of the Offeror. The Offeror shall file all
      claims for visible and concealed damage. The University shall notify the Offeror promptly of any damaged goods
      and shall assist the Offeror in arranging for inspection. Notice of rejection may be made to the Offeror at any time
      within one month after delivery has been made. When supported by a written statement from the University, the
      Offeror shall not dispute its claims of damage.

29.   Right of Inspection. The University shall have the right to inspect the goods at delivery before accepting

30.   Warranties. In addition to any implied warranties, Offeror warrants that the goods furnished shall conform to
      the specifications, drawings, and descriptions listed herein, and to the sample or samples furnished by the
      Offeror, if any. In the event of a conflict between the specifications, drawings, and description, the
      specifications shall govern.

31.   Sales and Use Tax. The Offeror shall comply with and require all of his subcontractors to comply with all the
      provisions of the applicable state and sales excise tax law and compensation use tax law and all amendments to
      same. The Offeror further agrees to indemnify and save harmless the University, of and from any and all claims
      and demands made against it by virtue of the failure of the Offeror or any subcontractor to comply with the
      provisions of any or all said laws in amendments. The University is not exempt from state sales excise tax and
      compensation use tax.

32.   Furnish and Install. The items in this Contract shall be provided on an Offeror furnish and install basis.
      Offeror shall have complete responsibility for the items or products until they are in place and working. Any
      special installation preparation and requirements shall be submitted to the University. All transportation and
      coordination arrangements shall be the responsibility of the Offeror. Delivery of products shall be coordinated
      so that products shall be delivered direct to the installation site. This shall minimize the risk of loss and/or
      damage and shall avoid double handling.

33.   Changes. Within the limits allowed by law, Offeror agrees that the University may order additional services, or
      make changes by altering, adding to, or deducting from the proposed services, the Contract sum being adjusted
      accordingly, and Offeror shall enter into a modification of the Contract to reflect said changes.

34.   Installment Payment Contract. The University is precluded from entering into an installment Contract unless
      such Contract can be canceled for non-allocation of funds at the end of any fiscal year, at no penalty to the
      University. If funds shall not be allocated for this Contract for periodic payment in any future annual fiscal period,
      following the University’s formal request for funds, the University shall not be obligated to pay the net remainder of
      agreed to consecutive periodic payments remaining unpaid beyond the end of the then current fiscal year. The
      University agrees to notify the Offeror of such non-allocation at the earliest possible time. No penalty shall accrue
      to the University in the event this provision shall be exercised. This provision shall not be construed so as to permit
      the University to terminate this Contract in order to acquire similar goods and/or services from another party.

35.   Price Adjustment. Price changes shall only be considered at the end of one Contract period and the beginning of
      another. Price change requests shall be supported by evidence of increased costs to the Offeror. The University
      shall not approve price increases that shall merely increase the gross profitability of the Offeror at the expense of
      the University. Price change requests shall be a factor in the Contract extension review process. The University
      shall determine whether the requested price increase or an alternate option shall be in the best interest of the

36.   Fixed Escalation Clause. Offeror shall certify a fixed maximum percentage of escalation of costs of goods
      and/or services for a period of five (5) years following expiration of warranty. Cost shall not exceed five (5) %
      per year or Consumer Price Index (CPI), whichsoever is less.

37.   Liquidated Damages: The University and the Offeror agree that in the event that the Offeror fails to perform
      under this Contract, the University shall be damaged. The extent of the damage is very difficult to calculate.
      Therefore, the Offeror agrees to pay the University liquidated damages if the agreed upon delivery and
      installation dates shall not be met. The liquidated damages shall be 5% of the total Contract price per day after
      the agreed upon completion date, not to exceed a total of 100% of the total Contract price.

38.   Invoices. Invoices covering each delivery shall be mailed to Accounts Payable once a month. Invoices shall
      be for all items delivered within the month. The intent shall be to receive one monthly billing. All invoices shall
      reference the purchase order number and the Contract.

39.   Payment. Payment shall be subject to the provisions of Title 35 of Arizona Revised Statutes relating to time
      and manner of submission of claims. The University's obligation shall be payable only and solely from funds
      appropriated for the purpose of the Contract.

40.   Personnel. Employees of the Offeror assigned to the project and identified by name in the Contract shall
      remain dedicated to this project. Personnel changes shall be permitted only with prior notification and approval
      of the University.

41.   Independent Contractor. It shall be understood that Offeror shall operate as an independent contractor, not
      as an employee or agent of the University.

42.   Advertising/Publishing. Offeror shall not advertise or publish, without the University’s prior consent, the fact
      that the University had entered into this Contract, except to the extent necessary to comply with proper request
      for information provided by appropriate statutes.
